Were you injured in an accident involving a tow truck? Our Dallas attorneys may be able to help.
Tow trucks provide a valuable service to broken down vehicles on our roads. That being said, these multi-ton vehicles can also cause big accidents involving multiple cars, and result in serious injuries to other motorists.
Tow trucks tend to offer less visibility to the driver, and unfortunately, not all tow truck operators are required to obtain anything more than a normal class C drivers license. Additionally, certain unscrupulous towing companies will often fail to adhere to suggested maintenance schedules, potentially putting other drivers at risk due to absolutely preventable maintenance issues.
No matter the cause, if you were hurt in a Dallas tow truck accident due to the fault of the other driver, we urge you to call Rasansky Law Firm today at 1-877-405-4313 for a free consultation to discuss your legal options. You may be entitled to substantial compensation, and we can get your claim started today.
There are various ways that tow trucks can cause accidents on the road. Let’s take a look at a few:
- The vehicle that’s being towed may become unlatched from the truck and careen into incoming traffic.
- Aggressive driving by a tow truck operator may lead to the driver taking risks at the expense of other road users. Excessive speeding, unnecessary honking, failure to obey traffic stops and other rules can lead to a serious automobile accident. This usually comes down to lack of vetting during the hiring process, as well as improper training and/or supervision by the tow truck company.
- Improper maintenance of tow trucks can put a dangerous machine on the road, posing a great risk to other drivers. Worn out tires, indicators that don’t work, mechanical failure and faulty brakes can all play a part in accident occurrence. It is the responsibility of both the driver and towing company to ensure that a tow truck is in top condition every time it hits the road.
- Tow trucks usually have larger blind spots on account of their pulling another vehicle which may block certain areas from view. This can cause errors in distance and spatial perception, and may lead to car accidents caused by things such as an improper lane change.
Due to the size and weight of a tow truck, these accidents tend to cause catastrophic injuries such as head and brain trauma, broken bones, back and neck injuries that are so serious that you may have to take substantial time off work, and more.
